only a blackboard or whiteboard to teach your subject? Ahh....I was so looking forward to having a Smartboard of some sort this year in my class but I guess that's not happening. Last year, all I had was a whiteboard and I hate it. I definitely miss the technology. I was looking forward to using all these nice visuals. Now it's not going to happen. Heck, it even ruined my idea of how I would assign seats. I can't just put their names on the desk beforehand either because I won't be in the same room. And how am I going to play Jeopardy if I wanted to. My class is going to be so boring again this year. Good thing I didn't go and create a bunch of PowerPoint presentations yet. The only advantage I see to having it is that I can leave things on the board for students to copy down without having to wait.
